Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle is the funniest movie ever. I laughed so hard it hurt. Probably not since Rat Race have I seen a movie that made me laugh as much. I wasn’t expecting much — I was thinking along the lines of American Pie 2 — but it blew me away. The writing was hilarious, the characters were fun, and the appearance by the partying, booty-seeking NPH as himself was brilliant. From mocking the ridiculous real-life anti-marijuana commercials to getting a cheetah stoned to being surrounded by two hotties on the potties to hang-gliding, Harold and Kumar know how to party. This movie is no holds barred, so stay away if you’re easily offended. This will be a future addition to my DVD collection.

This week has zipped by in a hurry. It’s been great fun having James here. We went mini-golfing the other night, have been to the Saratoga Brewery twice (mmm, growlers, hit the Saratoga Auto Museum, drove around the lake, played pool at Bev’s (dive bar at the lake), ate at Houlihan’s, saw that awesome movie last night, partied the night away.

Sometimes it amazes me how I’m able to function on so little sleep. Pretty much every night that James has been here we’ve stayed up till at least 12 or 1, and I’ve woken up by 730 or so for work. Last night set the bar even higher.

After returning home from the movie, we were juiced to party. The closest White Castle is in Yonkers, so we ruled that out. We called Justin and opted to hit the town. We put in quite the circuit of bar-hopping, going from City Tavern to Desperate Annie’s to the Artisan patio to Clancy’s to Tin & Lint. Not a bad showing for a week night. It was nearly 3am by the time we got home and I was up around 8.

Tonight we do it again with a free Indian dinner (I won a contest!) and some more fun on the town.

The one stressful thing we’ve been dealing with this week (which is finally resolved) is a contractor who wouldn’t return our calls or show up when he said he would. He actually stopped answering our calls at one point, so only after calling from my cell phone and telling his wife that we’d cancelled the way-too-big deposit check we had given him did he finally show up. Money talks. Lesson learned.

Gotta love a prez who compares his administration to the enemies and admits to harming the U.S. Misspoken or Freudian slip that finally reveals the truth?

    You think you are the man b/c you can function on so little sleep? Bah! I can top that:

    I went to bed last night at 1:30 after studying for the GMAT from 10:00 – 1:30. I fell asleep around 2 AM, and Maydene (my 7 month old) decided at around 4:30 that she did not want to sleep, and wanted to play– hardcore. I’m talking laughing, bouncing, tickling, jumping, crawling– the full nine yards.

    I got her back to sleep at around 6:30, grabbed on more hour of sleep, and was up by 7:30.
